Course Offerings for the Pre-College Program

Now in its second year, Emory's Pre-College Program allows talented rising high school juniors and seniors to experience Emory's distinctive academic and residential community. This year, the summer program tackles the challenges of living sustainability in the modern world with the Science of Sustainability Institute. Taught by Daphne Norton from the Department of Chemistry, the Institute offers students the unique opportunity to explore the intersection between problems facing our environment and the solutions science has to offer. A full-day program, the Institute includes two daily classes, a lab and extracurricular activities connected to Emory's Sustainability Initiative. In addition, the Institute will highlight some of Emory's unique sustainable programs, including LEED buildings, biodiesel shuttles and the educational food gardens.

The Pre-College Program offers six-week credit courses in disciplines including Biology, Economics, Mathematics, Film Studies, Languages, Theater Studies, Social Sciences and Visual Arts. Two-week, non-credit courses span similar subject areas and include classes taught by Jennifer Romig ( "Lawyer as Advocate and Advisor"), Scott Stewart  ("Spectacular Soundtracks: Music in Movies"), Marshall Duke ("Psychology of Creativity"), Eugene Gangarosa ("Public Health Career Opportunities and Practices") and Peter Wakefield ("Ethics and Bioethics").

Courses run from May 18 to August 6. Children of staff members may be eligible for the courtesy scholarship for credit courses.
